Mail Processing Technology(I'll post a msg tomorrow) : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I've seen several questions about postal this and that down the board after all you rat bastards thumped on Flint . For the record, the cancellation mark on your mail piece is manually changed every day by persons like my self. I'm too shitfaced now to post a lucid reply. I'll try very hard and give a proper discussion on this topic in the PM tomorrow. I will walk you through the process by which your mail goes from point A to point B.

Thank God for rum. It takes the edge off the situation. And since I started drinking again I have not cracked any more teeth. However my head hurts in the AM.

Like the Grey Bear says, Got Hooch?

A disgruntled Postal Worker?? UH-OH. Hope he doesn't own an AK-47.

High Nine,

How does one fix fiddely flaws reliably while intermittently inebriated or suffering headaches?

Looks like the Postal Service has a Y2High problem!

Not disgruntled, well adjusted. And for the record, I've got an M-16A1 carbine. And the hoops I had to jump through to get the SOB would make you have a case of the red ass which would not go away.BTW in the USA, a legal AK-47(The machinegun, not a semiautomatic wannabe) runs in the neighborhood of five thousand dollars. Which is why when I go to the shoots the majority of the people there are doctors, lawyers, real estate types. They are the only ones who can afford the toys. BTW, a transferrable STEN from WWII runs about 2k. They only cost about $3.00 to make during the war. Talk about markup! Did I mention the $200.00 federal tax you pay each time these things get transfered? Don't make me crack my teeth. More Grog, I need more Grog.

Aye lad, there is nothin finer, than a good ihrish whiskey. Till I wakes up the next mornin!

Yes- I have been wondering what's up with the Post Office and Y2K- I asked at my local post office and they said they don't have a clue- nobody tells them nuttin- so- any info on it?? The amount of stuff that is dependant on mail being delivered is way up there in my opinion.(Though I wouldn't miss the junkmail.....)
